Donate Materials to the Library

The University Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill selectively accepts donations of materials (also known as “gifts-in-kind”) to the general, circulating collections. Items selected must fall within the scope of the Library’s current collecting priorities and support the University’s teaching and research mission.

Gift materials most desirable for the Library’s collections are relevant works not already held by the Library. All material must be in good condition – clean and odor free, with durable bindings, and no brittle, stained, marked, or discolored pages. The Library reserves the right to decline material and to determine retention, cataloging treatment, location, and terms of use for the material accepted.
